Man ribbon...manly card


Well the Friday challenge at notimetostamp is to make a manly ( if there is such a word)card and use like string or twine etc. My etc. is I guess called hemp.
Mr.Webster of the dictionary fame says...hemp has a strong stem that yeilds a course fiber that is used in cordage and I think mine is that cordage. Love that word, it's manly and so that is why I used it for my " manly" ribbon. This lighthouse is a stamp I borrowed from a friend and stamped off so....don't know who made it. Just very lightly colored it, added some of the seagulls along the side using my water-mark ink and the Happy Birthday from Just Rite. Simple card and suitable for my
manly card.
Well it's the weekend again and I'm in the process of spreading 3 yards of cedar mulch in my flower beds and trying to exterminate the weeds. I scream die weeds die, but for some weird reason they are too ornery to oblige. Makes me feel like as I grow older I grow more irritable. Dang! Have a fun weekend.

Great card, Pat! Great use of that hemp cordage!

I know what you mean about the weed situation. Tim spends hours each month trying to tame the weeds on our property. He just bought a backpack sprayer that holds 4 gallons and it still wasn't enough for him to make a complete pass (we have 5 acres, mostly wooded).

Anyway, have fun this weekend!

Great job on the man card ... LOVE the "manly ribbon" you used ... works perfectly with your image! Great Job!!

I spent the day cutting grass and trying to get my edger started with no success. Dreading mulching this year ... I need minimum of 10 yards to cover necessary areas ... usually more like 12 ... uugh, it makes me tired just thinking about it!

LOVE this card! And that hemp/twine/rope is a terrific embellie.

A really great male card Pat! About the weeds, there's some stuff in a yellow container at Home Depot that has a nozzle that you just walk around and spread it in the flower beds. It fertilizes and keeps the weeds out too! Now if I could just remember to use it!
